used to be considered somewhat routine. we say you cannot cap the coverage in a health insurance policy because life is unpredictable and our medical future is unpredictable. that's one of the provisions that has to be built into the policy. we also say you can't discriminate against people in selling health insurance because they happen to be women. and there was rank discrimination against women in america when it came to the issuance of health insurance before this new law. we go on to say 80% of the premiums you collect have to be paid into medical services, not taken out in profit and marketing. we also say that if you have a health insurance policy, your son or daughter can stay under it until they reach the age of 26. that's important to every family with a graduating college student or someone looking for a job in a household. they may not find a job or if they do, it may not have benefits. don't you want the peace of mind as a parent to know up to age 26 you can keep them on the family policy? i've given you five things that are part of so-called obamacare, five things that hav
